Embossing - dry stencil embossing

I have dry embossed this card with brass stencils and coloured it with pearlised chalks. Then I gently ran over the teapot and cups with glitter glue and metallic pens. 
It looks better in person... thanks to my poor camera. :(
To fill in the empty space at the bottom I have used the Mary Engelbreit teapots punch.
Manual embossing can be a bit laborious sometimes... but the end results are always fun.
